Synopsis

In 1996, 13 year-old Stevie finds an escape from his troubled home life in Los Angeles when he befriends a group of teenage boys at a skate shop and decides to become a skateboarder. Despite his inexperience, the four other boys take him in and Stevie responds positively, eager to please the young rebels. Together they roam around the neighbourhood causing trouble and mischief, aiming to stay out as long as they can to avoid the difficulties that await them at home. In Stevie’s case, his older brother Ian is violent and his single mother Dabney becomes worried of the effect his new friends are having on him as he encounters a number of new experiences. ‘Mid90s’ is an expressive coming-of-age film from first-time director Jonah Hill with a pulsating soundtrack which explores serious themes such as mental health, addiction and abuse.

Strong language, drug misuse, self-harm, violence.
